    The Black Drongo (Dicrurus macrocercus) is a wholly black bird with a distinctive forked tail. Feeding on insects, it is common in open agricultural areas and light forest throughout its range, perching conspicuously on a bare perch or along power or telephone lines. The species is famous for its aggressive behavior towards much larger birds, such as crows, never hesitating to dive-bomb any birds of prey that invade its territory. The informal name of King Crow is based on this behavior.

bright green walking leaf insect..what can I say, nature inspires me more than anything. I am amazed.

Beautiful shot of a raven in flight. Tuft of feathers on beak, shimmer in feathers, pointed wings, appears to be raven (rather than crow) sized, with a curved (rather than crow's straight) beak, but I don't know if ravens ever have a hooked beak. The photographer reports the "gluck" sound of a raven (not the "caw" of a crow).

The Raven | And the raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door; And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming, And the lamp-light o'er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor; And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor Shall be lifted - nevermore!

Indian Pitta (Pitta brachyura) The 20 cm Indian Pitta is a small bird which occurs in many parts of the country. Its brilliant colors light up the dark and wet forest understory in which it leads a shy existence. Pitta is derived from Telegu which means a small bird. The chirp of these birds can generally be heard in the morning and in the dusk. Because of the timing of their calls, these birds are also called as six-o-clock birds in Tamil.
